Matakana Estate has been at the forefront of local winemaking since this premium, boutique wine region was first developed some 30 years ago. Like many respected New Zealand wineries, Matakana Estate was established by descendants of Croatian migrants who settled in and around Auckland more than 100 years ago. From the very beginning, the winery established itself as a producer of top quality wines, attracting attention and plaudits worldwide, and winning a number of awards in international wine competitions. We are situated in the heart of Matakana, a hidden gem of a wine region, which lies between rolling green hills and beautiful sandy beaches less than an hours drive north of Auckland. Rich in culture, the area attracts many visitors to enjoy its fine wines, local foods, busy markets, and art and craft galleries. Our philosophy has always been to capture the essence of New Zealands finest grape varieties from the regions where they grow best, so as well as making wines from our own substantial Matakana vineyards, we seek out limited amounts of premium grapes from selected wine regions further afield to make the very best wines we can. The grape juice is allowed to rest on its skins to extract the maximum flavor and colour from the fruit. The wine is them matured in predominantly new French oak barriques from an extended period of 12 months, adding distinctive yet integrated oak characters. This audacious wine, with its bright brick red colours, lead with heady aromas of aniseed, blueberry, then captivates with hints of cracke black pepper, toasty oak, savoury characters and subtle smokiness. Intense fruit flavours of blue berries, red currants and radpberries are layeres with complex savoury and spicy characters and fine round tannins, A long, soft finish with a gracious fruit lift completes the experience.
